I think it's about time I decided to break my silence and do some sort of write up for the 2009-10 season, but after reading all of the year end things that have been wrote in the past week or so I really don't know what to say.
People that know me, know that I eat, sleep and breath Pats hockey all year and I am almost at a loss for words (for now anyway). I did want to air my frustrations but I honestly can't pinpoint them. At various times throughout the season I was frustrated with the teams coaching, defence, goaltending, management, scouting, etc.... Pretty much like most other fans. But I can't blame anyone. There is no "I" in team.
I don't understand why people sit around at their computers and totally smack talk the kids. i know I am critical at times (I plan in keeping it minimal from now on, just need to be more positive) but some people take it way too far. I know that the team is losing Eberle, Leffler, Teubert, McColm and Strueby but gimme a break the sun will come up tomorrow. People have to remember there is a bunch of kids that are coming back or coming to try to make the squad for 2010-11 and need people to support them and not say the team is going to be terrible for years to come. They play the games for a reason. Heck they may struggle for the next few years but give them a break and let them play the games and supoport them.
I'm getting pretty irritated writing this right now and I'm not totally sure why. I will have more to say in a bit but I figured I would check in and have something to say.
As ever. GO PATS GO!
